Theater Camp (12A)

Wednesday, September 20

Share:

Dir. Molly Gordon, Nick Lieberman, US, 2023, 93 mins. Cast. Molly Gordon, Ben Platt, Noah Galvin.

As summer rolls around again, kids are gathering from all over to attend AdirondACTS, a scrappy theatre camp in upstate New York that’s a haven for budding performers.

After its indomitable founder Joan falls into a coma, her clueless “crypto bro” son Troy is tasked with keeping the thespian paradise running. With financial ruin looming, Troy must join forces with Amos, Rebecca-Diane, and their band of eccentric teachers to come up with a solution before the curtain rises on opening night.

First-time feature directorial duo Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman authentically celebrate the brilliant and slightly unhinged educators and magical spaces that allow kids to be themselves and find their confidence, nailing the details after experiencing decades of camp life.

With a winning ensemble cast and boundless creativity, Theater Camp wears its cult-following potential squarely on its sequined shoulders, gifting us with instantly quotable lines and zany, lovable characters in the kind of hilarious comedy that deserves rapturous applause.
